The day I could finally breathe again..

Ok. So you probably think I mean that quite literally.. babies really do squash your lungs (kidneys, bladder etc etc!) but putting on my serious face now.. it is such a relief to say our baby is here.. we made it.. and everything is perfect.  Oh so perfect. 

We didn't know the sex, we only had a girls name chosen.  After I failed two pregnancies (yes, failed because even now it's the only way to describe that hole inside of me) in three long years of heartache.. we couldn't care what our baby was.. just that we made it.

Our beautiful son Gabriel Lee Marshall was born at 11.47am on March 17th (8 days late) weighing a tiny 6lb 9oz. The smallest of our children but by far the most painful, quickest labour lasting exactly 5 hours.

 And I think he likes it here.. here's our boy at 5 days old..






































It's good to have him home, we're smitten..Marshall family complete :)

And now you know where i've been!!
